Year of the Fairy Tale – Fleurs of the Forest

27 May

Doddling while watching mindless TV.  (When I’m fatigued I find myself sitting and watching mindless T.V.  HGTV is my favorite channel – no violence, swearing, mayhem or pestilence.)  Decided to take advantage of my mindlessness and mindlessly doodles.  Through NO intention I ended up with a forest of fleurs which goes with the French Fairy tale  “Blondine, Bonne-Biche, and Beau-Minon”  (My favorites below are #2 & 3 – I like it simpler)

Fleurs of the Forest #4

 Before #4 I doodled with black marker

Doodle #1.  UGLY! – so I cut out the fleurs (hate to waste ANYTHING)

Fleurs, #1

Doodle Fleurs, #1 – SEE! I told you it was mindless.

In case you want to refresh your memory here are links for my other illustrations for “Blondine, Bonne-Biche, and Beau-Minon”

    Wow, I will try watching that mindless channel to get inspiration. Don’t know if I can watch it long enough tho.
    I like #4, and loved traveling back in time to Yip yippee Yupo, which I think, is one your Best Creations.

      Aeeda,
      HGTV House Hunters International is one of my favorites – kinda like being able to be a “lookie-loo” around the world.

    I would love to be lost in your bois de fleurs! So, I j’aime #2 with the small person.

      Phylor,
      Ah, that we may all be lost in a bois de fleurs instead of in the bog de mind! Love your comment as it brought up for me lots of different associations to my own life!

    These are a BIT more than doodles. Very nice. Didn’t think HGTV could be so inspirational…

    My favorite is number 3, I have sheets like that. There is no reason why you couldn’t sell that pattern to companies and give you and ours the life of luxury you so deserve. Also, I meant to tell you this last time, I adore “The Little Prince” which could be a very good copy of a little boy or a total infringement of the copyright law. I will visit you in jail and bring you all kinds of dessert. Always. Love, P k Jr.

      Hiber,
      When you visit me bring me a set of your sheets too – I hear that the ones furnished have low thread count.
